I've been enjoying myself looking at that website but i think my Netscape
browser on my macintosh might have different translation things than other
computers. That these vary from computer to computer because of the translation software.

The other thing i like about the old books is the tipped in illustrations.
Beyond "quaint."
and the feeling that the book has had history.
It's strange how all my books are signed by their owners and ownership cards
taken out.
People will learn to appreciate books again once the paper gets scarce.
